A minor girl was hacked to death at Golachipa village in Hossainpur upazila on Sunday morning over a land-related dispute between her family and others
The deceased was identified as Anita Azad, 6, daughter of Md Alamgir, of Birpaikasha village.
Sheikh Mostafizur Rahman, officer-in-charge of Hossainpur Police Station, said that one Osman Miah had a dispute with Sirajul, Murshed and Golap of the same clan over a piece of land.
